Chase and Status- Brand New Machine: This is another mixture of disparate styles that actually work well together. You start out with club and ragga and then it transitions, somehow, into dance without missing a beat. There’s also some drum … Continue reading

Sting- The Last Ship: I’ll give Sting this: I can never predict what one of his albums will be like. This one continues his spate of folk-influenced records, though there’s some jazzier pieces on it as well. The sailing motifs … Continue reading

Sleep Party People- Floating: New group, to my knowledge. They’ve got a really ethereal dream sound, kind of a Sigur Ros without the post-rock aspect. (The singer especially sounds like Jonsi.) Honestly, their name is pretty descriptive. This isn’t bad, … Continue reading

Elton John- The Diving Board: I kind of can’t believe Sir Elton’s still making music. But, though he can’t reach the high notes like he used to, he still sounds good, though I detect a slur in his sibilants. It’s … Continue reading

John Mayer- Paradise Valley: I was rather impressed with his last album. It doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago, either. Lightning was not fated to strike twice, however. This is a more standard outing for him, and … Continue reading

My Little Pony: The Movie
